Scheier, Lawrence M.; Botvin, Gilbert J.
Journal of Child and Adolescent Substance Abuse, v5 n1 p1-26 1996

Findings underscore the continued primacy of deviance in predicting drug use and the necessity of incorporating affective influences into current cognitive-behavioral intervention strategies for minority youth.
